What's being done about adapting the cocoa industry around the pod bora crisis?

Thanks Ken. I didn't realize that 50 partnerships would actually mean about 700 farming households would be helped. I'm glad the PNG Department of Agriculture is involved.

I hope you will keep us posted on the progress of this project as a number of us are very keen to see the cash crop industry flourish again.

I hope all goes well and PPAP have a firm grip on the finances. I'm sorry to say that there are a number of us on this blog who have had experiences with "money going missing". But with a little extra care, hopefully, things will go well for you.

Hi Barbara, 50 partnerships may sound low but they would benefit say 700 farming households, some many more - so they're quite large. The project's led by the Ministry of Agriculture.

Great news. But 50 partnerships still sounds a low number. Surely this is the sort of work the PNG Department of Agriculture should also be doing.
